About this deal

Read more about the condition Opened – never used: An item in excellent, new condition with no wear. It works very fast but of course once the show has expired on whatever catchup service you're selecting it from it will expire as well on your watchlist. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. I’ve not recorded any programmes “in anger” yet so I haven’t come across any problems with clashes etc, but I’ll be wary of them and see how it goes. Getting something totally free is likely to get a true MoneySaver's heart pumping faster than any cardio workout ever could.

I was – and still am, a big fan of the T3-R, as it combines advanced recording features with excellent picture quality and a snappy interface (see my full Manhattan T3-R review). Not a big issue as the 1080p PQ is superb but I was thinking about watching 4k YouTube videos from the box without having to switch the output settings everytime I want to use the YouTube app. I see no point in having channel favourites if it reverts back to the full channel list after going into standby or using the P+ button, I have deleted many unused channels to get a usable channel list. Many programmes have long title sequences anyway and I can usually catch up with the plot of a programme which has had it's start clipped.Do note that recording a series depends on its correct tagging by the people behind the Freeview EPG. I’ve had a Humax 5000T for quite some time now and although it may be a little bit slow at turning on sometimes, I’ve never really had any problems with it. If you can’t connect your T4•R to your router using an Ethernet cable, the update can be installed using USB instead. The best Freeview recording device available today, with support for FreeviewPlay catch-up apps, 4K (which is mostly for the future), and a very fast, slick interface.

When you play recorded content, you can of course fast forward and rewind, and by pressing the “Right” button you can also instantly jump 30 seconds ahead – which is great for skipping those annoying adverts. Also considering the Humax and also smart tv's with USB recording, if anyone can generalise if these are now common features. Although the Manhattan T3-R has a digital TV tuner inside and gets content over-the-air through (preferably) a rooftop aerial, the Manhattan T3-R demands an internet connection to really come alive.Generally speaking, a direct Ethernet-cable connection is faster and more stable than WiFi – but if your WiFi signal is strong, it’ll be enough. The remote is of decent quality, too, with large buttons and a white icon in the middle for summoning the Freeview Play user interface. So, in a bid to combine fitness with frugality, I've rounded up 20 ways you can exercise and get fit without spending a penny, both outdoors and at home. The two devices will be major upgrades over the previous models, in many ways – and we’ll be able to tell you more about them in the near future.

Hi David and thank you for your really helpful post, i must admit what you have said does sound a lot more promising than i thought. That changes with this British-designed set-top box, which has a delicious user interface, works super-fast and is crammed with catch-up TV apps. That's not all - it also gives you access to the best British catch-up and on demand services, meaning you can watch your favourite shows on your own terms. Definitely interested in this PVR , unless Humax sort the aura out and the aura app is decent then that might just trump the T3-R. I looked at the the T3-R and did contact Manhattan about a future triple tuner option but they advised this was not in their planned product schedule.Freeview Play is a way of accessing all digital free-to-air TV channels in the UK without spending anything beyond the cost of a set-top box. Connecting all our boxes to the internet is also the easiest way for them to receive software updates, ensuring you’re always receiving our latest and greatest service. The T3-R also has great support for subtitles and audio descriptions – if you watch a show with subtitles (which can be turned on and off easily with a dedicated button), recording that show will keep the subtitles available – and you can again turn them on and off with the press of a button.
